Comment So *that's* what that was... (Score 2) 202

This is personally amusing to me because I spent half of Sunday trying to track down reports of my Android Live Wallpaper app not working properly. I guess in hindsight, it's pretty cool. I mean, it's not often that you get to lament that a rogue satellite ruined your afternoon.

Oh, and in case you were wondering why I didn't take the opportunity to shamlessly plug my app.


It's a live wallpaper for Android phones that shows the nearest NWS radar imagery.

Seconded. As a self taught programmer, classic algorithms are always my weakest link when I do an interview. Unfortunately, it's also the most glaring, since they usually teach that kind of stuff early on in COMP SCI. I had an interview with Amazon a while back and in preparation bought the book "Programming Interviews Exposed". It's a pretty good resource for getting your hands dirty with all the algorithms that a general programmer should know.
